Church of England Diocese of Southwark Malden

4 Children and teenagers


Children are always welcome at our acts of worship, although some services are naturally more suited to children than others.

THIRTY MINUTES is especially designed for small children.


The 9.45 Sunday service is also a good one to bring children along to.

If small children are restless, there is a soft play area for them and their parent in the coffee lounge, where you can still hear through the service by relay.

For children from age 5 to Year 6 there is Children's Ministry at the 9.45 service.

Children come to Church and sit with their parents/carers (Sorry! You can't just send them). Soon after the service begins they are invited to join our children's workers in the extension for activities based on that Sunday's theme and readings. Later they rejoin their parents as Holy Communion is distributed. 


On the second Sunday of each month we have THIRTY MINUTES at 11.30am.

This is a boistrous and noisy service for pre-school children and their parents or carers.

 On Wednesday mornings we have our Toddlers Group in the extension which is open to all. For Health and Safety reasons though, there is a maximum number allowed so best to get there soon after 9.30am!



We have a special group for young people from Year 7 onwards - 11 Up - which mets on the first Sunday of each month after the 9.45 service. As well as this there are opportunities for teenagers tto join our Choir and our Serving Team.

We also have a sponsored Scout Group and good contacts with local Guide units.

See our other links for details


We also support the OXYGEN youth project.

All of the adults who work with children and teenagers at St John's have either already had a CRB check or are undergoing one.
